October 2021 Mountain Grass Report
The 2021 Ultra Premium Mountain Grass we have in stock is currently a first cut blend of Timothy Hay, Orchard Grass and Brome (meadow grass) that is grown at high altitudes. This year is a little heavy on Timothy Hay, which all looks incredible. We secured a good amount of it this year so we should be able to provide this hay consistently all year!
Here is the report on what we have in stock:
Overall Rating: 8/10
Harvest: First cut of a Timothy, Orchard, Brome blend, it was harvested in June of 2021.
Location: Northern California
Color: Forest Green
Stems/Stalks: The Timothy Hay in this offering is more prominent than the other two varieties and the stems are thick and plentiful.
Leaves: The leaf is softened considerably by the presence of Orchard and Brome.
Seed Heads/Flowers: Fair amount of seed heads of both Timothy and Orchard.
Leaf Crush: little to none.
Summary: This year's Mountain Grass is a good example of what Mountain Grass should be. The only reason it doesn't receive a 10/10 is that the Timothy is more prevalent and there is a tiny bit of leaf crush.
